When you think about suit quality, what are the first few things that come to mind? How killer it makes you look (fit) is obviously numero uno. How nice it feels (fabric quality) is an obvious second. But what about construction? Unlike fit and fabric quality, you may not care about the construction of a suit. But lucky for you, we care because when it comes to determining the overall quality of a suit, construction plays a large role.

In this post, we’ll discuss the different types of suit jacket construction—namely, fused vs. canvassed and why they should matter to you. Yep, we just got real technical up in this joint. And before you stop reading because you think this article is only of interest to suit junkies who spend their Saturday nights brushing their suits while listening to opera music, let us give you two simple reasons why you should care to understand canvassing:

  1. Canvassed suit jackets drape better (and hence, will make you look even more killer).
  2. Canvassed suit jackets last longer (so you can look more killer for a long time).

Do we have your attention now? Let’s begin.
